Set up keyword notifications
Keywords alert you to conversations in channels you've joined about topics that interest you. Anytime someone uses one of your keywords,
you'll receive a notification and see it highlighted in yellow.
Add words or phrases for things like the name of a project you're responsible for, or something you definitely don't want to miss out on (like the coffee order)! ☕️
Manage your keywords
From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left. Select
Preferences from the menu. Click
My keywords, enter the words or phrases you’d like to be notified about.
Swipe left to open the right sidebar.
My Keywords to add or edit words or phrases you’d like to be notified about.
Tap the three dots icon in the top right. Tap
Notifications, tap Settings. Tap
My Keywords to add or edit words or phrases you’d like to be notified about. Tap
Note: Your keywords are not case-sensitive, so coffee, Coffee, and COFFEE will all create the same notification.
Keep in mind: Keywords in messages from some bots or integrations won't trigger notifications, but they'll appear highlighted in Slack.
